Basic Food & Recovery Plan
— Eat some of the following foods every 2 hours —
1. Fresh or Frozen veggies
Eat 9-14 portions of fresh or frozen veggies daily (in soups, juiced, stir-fried, steamed, etc.); 50% raw juiced (use the pulp in soups) and organic if possible. Blended makes for better digestion.
6. Pasture-Fed Meats
If you want to eat meat, then choose pasture-fed meats or chicken and eat only a small amount weekly. Grass-fed is healthier than grain or corn-fed animals.
2. Dark-Skinned Fruits
Eat 5 portions of antioxidant-rich, dark-skinned fruits (blueberries, cherries, red grapes, etc.) daily.
Include Hemp, Omega 3, or Krill oil and other healthy oils like Olive oil and Coconut oil.
Avocados are the all-time superfood with nearly a full spectrum of nutrients. If they are available where you live, make sure you have at least 2 per day for good health recovery. All health issues are helped by these.
Drink 8 glasses of distilled or filtered water per day with a pinch of bicarbonate of soda.
4. Beans, Nuts and Seeds
Eat 5 portions of beans, nuts and seeds (soaked and mashed for the nuts and seeds).
Take 3-5 (depending upon your body mass and the heat) teaspoons of Sea or Rock Salt daily in food or a little water. Sea or Rock Salt does not contain the critical mineral iodine, so add Nascent Iodine to your daily dose.
If you eat fish, then eat at least 3-4 portions per week of oily fish and vary it by choosing fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, etc. Even canned fish is very nutritious, and wild caught fish is best.
Here is our Recovery Food Plan for any health issue (and pro anti-aging), as well as to maintain ‘perfect Health’ (pH). Eating a mainly alkaline diet (high pH) is the other critical thing to do. See the food shopping ideas below
During the recovery phase, stop eating all starchy carbohydrates (breads, pastry, cookies, breakfast cereals, rice, potatoes, and pasta), processed foods and milk products.
- Once you have regained pH, then cheating occasionally is normal.
- You will notice how bad you felt in the past from just one unhealthy meal.
- As healthy alternatives to carbs, consider: Quinoa, Chia Seeds, Amaranth, Buckwheat, and Millet Seeds.
- Cous Cous can be used, except for those who are allergic to gluten proteins (celiacs, etc.).
Exercise every day: Gentle rebounding for 30 minutes or fast walking for 3 miles and low weight training (all to the music of your youth).
- If you have circulation problems or simply cannot exercise, then you can start with lying on your back on your couch and cycling your legs in the air. This will improve circulation to your organs and legs and take the pressure off your heart and lungs when exercising.
- Get someone to hold your feet to help you until you are strong enough to go solo.
- Do not skip this as your health depends upon oxygen and blood circulation.
